Bavarian Wool - Naturally excellent
Bavarian Wool is made from the wool of the Merinoland sheep - a breed mainly found in southern and central Germany and the Wurttemberg region, and which accounts for over 30% of the German sheep population. The merino wool used for BOGNER is sourced exclusively from certified, organic and high-welfare sheep farmers in Bavaria, who guarantee that the animals are kept in a species-appropriate and resource-friendly manner on alpine pastures and meadows free from fertilisers.
Merino wool is considered one of the finest and softest wools, ideal for outdoor activities due to its moisture and temperature regulation, breathability, as well as antimicrobial and thus odourless properties.
Even when wet, merino wool provides comfortable warmth with an absorption level of up to 30%.
The combination of Bavarian Wool and innovative InfraCycle infrared fibres creates a “performance” wadding developed exclusively for BOGNER, which complements the natural characteristics of merino wool with additional positive features:
- IMPROVE COMFORT: It promotes blood circulation in the body, thus promoting an improved sense of well-being
- STAY ENERGISED: It supports homeostasis, which ensures balanced physiological functions
- ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY: The high emission fibre is made from recycled plastic bottles to reduce the ecological footprint
- INNOVATIVE TREATMENT: The treatment with natural salts prevents the formation of chlorinated substances, for a completely eco-friendly production process
